Switzerland based independent master watchmaker Cedric Johner has released a limited edition watch to mark the 30th anniversary of his professional independence. Limited to 30 pieces, this commemorative timepiece is the reissue of the iconic Abyss watch.
Cedric Johner’s career has been shaped through many experiences, starting with jewelry at Chopard – where all began – to the world of watchmaking. He created his eponymous brand in 1997.
To celebrate his 30 years of activity, Cédric Johner has decided to reissue a unique timepiece, reflecting his know-how and highlighting his creativity.
For the first time, Cédric Johner is offering the Abyss Chronograph column wheel model in 316L steel with exceptional finishes.
Customers take part in this creation by having the possibility of choosing the color of the dial, the artisanal finishes of the movement, as well as the bracelet. As usual, almost all of the components of this watch are handcrafted by Cédric Johner in his workshop in Carouge, step by step. Each model is emotional and characterized by the uniqueness of its finishes.
The Abyss Chronograph column wheel model in 316L steel is limited to 30 pieces, all numbered and having a reference certificate.
Initially, the watch is available for preorder for the most loyal and prestigious customers of its brand. In the second stage, the watch will be put on sale to general customers. The fastest will be able to choose their limited number directly via the online reservation system.
